Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a great read" Bob Casgrain, Stardust

"The production values of the book are superb...The Caldwell Objects is strongly recommended to collections with an emphasis on amateur astronomy, and would certainly be appropriate for academic collections supporting astronomy programs that offer courses in deep sky observation." E-STREAMS

"After his brilliant Deep-Sky Companions: The Messier Objects, Steve O'Meara has done it again. Deep-Sky Companions: The Caldwell Objects is a beautifully written, personal guide for observing 109 of the most beautiful objects in the night sky, plus 20 more personally chosen deep-sky treasures. Coupled with O'Meara's own meticulous observations, the rich observational history and current scientific knowledge of each object bring this book to life, and the depth of O'Meara's writing makes it a real gem." David H. Levy, Parade Science Editor and Codiscoverer of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9

"Stephen O'Neara's Deep-Sky Companions: The Caldwell Objects is an indispensable guide for anyone who observes the night sky with a quality amateur telescope from a reasonably dark place. Here are tips for viewing - and understanding! - more than one hundred entrancing galaxies, star clusters and nebulae available to the backyard enthusiast. With its wealth of scientific and historical information, and its poetic sensibility, the book gave me immense pleasure even before I left my easy chair." Chet Raymo, Author, 365 Starry Nights and an Intimate Look at the Night Sky

"I think this series will long survive as a great set of observing books." Planetarian, Karl von Ahnen, De Anza College
